This piece shows "the split between conditional Arminianism, which provides salvation to those men redeemed by faith, and unconditional Calvinism...Wigglesworth, voicing distinct Arminian sentiments, answered that all election and foreordination are conditional, and that no man is 'under irresistible motions, either to good or evil.' From the point of view of theological doctrine, Wigglesworth's gradual compromise heralds the advent of Unitarianism." DAB.
